Making your own food doesn’t have to be a chore. It can be a great way to relax after a day of classes and studying, and it will SAVE YOU MONEY, which is one of the main reasons to do it. Creating your own meals is generally a healthier way of eating, too, especially if you shop for ingredients locally and avoid buying overly-processed foods at a grocery store. And cooking can be a great way to meet other people – local students and other study abroad students sharing the same kitchen will be more willing to strike up a conversation if there’s something savory on the stove.
